Man-Sized Wreath by REM (off Accelerate 2008)
Transcribed by:  Jeff Martin
Tuning:  Standard

I think the opening riff can be done 3 ways (it's a G chord), what ever suits you.  Here
the three options:

Option 1: (the Thumb frets the low E string and the index finger frets both the high E
the B strings.) 

|-3-3-3h5p3------|
|-3-3------3h5p3-|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|-3-3------------|X2
  T T

Option 2:

|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|-12-12-12h14p12---------|
|-12-12---------12h14p12-|
|-10-10------------------|
|------------------------|

Option 3: (as previously described) (you could fret the low E at the 3rd fret with your
if you like, but you don't have to)

|-3-3-3h5p3------|
|-3-3------3h5p3-|
|-4-4------------|
|-5-5------------|
|----------------|
|-3-3------------|

The Verse(s) are played mostly in variations of a G chord where the ring finger hammers
B string at the 3rd fret (the D note) while the E and A strings ring out.  I seems
to tab, but I will try.  There are variations of this throughout the song... but this 
to be the theme.

Verse 1 & 2:
Pt. 1:

|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
|-0-0-0h3-0-3-0-0-0-0-0h3-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
|-2-2-----------2-2-2-----|
|-3-3-----------3-3-3-----|

Pt 2: (Db7 chord) Note: listen to the song for the rhythm an the hammer on, on the B
 It's there for sure.

|-4-4-4-4-4-4---4-4-|
|-6-6-6-6-6-4h6-6-6-|
|-4-4-4-4-4-4---4-4-|
|-6-6-6-6-6-6---6-6-|
|-4-4-4-4-4-4---4-4-|
|-------------------|X2

Play Verse Pt. 1 & 2 again.

Pre-chorus/Chorus:

The chord progression is:  Am-Dsus2 (sometimes D)-Bm-E-C-G-D

The Tab:

  Am       Dsus2   Bm      E      C G D
|----0-------0-------2------------0-3-2-|
|-----1-------3-------3------0----1-0-3-|
|---2--2----2--2----4--4------1---0-0-2-|
|--2----2--0----0--4----4---2--2--2-0-0-|
|-0-------0-------2--------2----2-3-2-0-|
|-------------------------0-------0-3-0-|X1

Verse 2:  Same as Verse 1.

Pre-Chorus/Chorus 2: Same as 1st (BUT PLAY 2X)

Opening Riff X1

Verse 3:  Same as Verses 1 and 2.

Pre chorus/Chorus 3:  Same as 1st (BUT PLAY 3X)

Anyways,  It's all there.  REM make a purdy good record!  Athens GA!

Peace.
